Outside Interests



Growing up in the Adirondack region of New York, I developed a passion for all things outdoors!  I enjoy spending time with my family while doing a number of things, especially outside.  Hiking, camping, boating, mountain biking, skiing, snowshoeing, fishing and hunting, among other things, keep us very busy around the Finger Lakes area.  While I truly enjoy all of these things, if I had to pick a top choice it would be fishing, especially fly-fishing.  There are a number of excellent trout streams to be found throughout New York State and Northern Pennsylvania, and if I have a spare minute or two, you'll find me wading in one of them in search of the ever-elusive trout!  Here are pictures from some of my adventures:




I also enjoy listening to and playing music, especially bluegrass, contemporary folk and alt-country.  I play the guitar, pick a little banjo, and am trying to teach myself the mandolin.  Here are some links for a list of bands/artists that I'm currently listening to:
